Google is currently facing a penalty of up to $5 billion if the tech giant is found to have violated antitrust laws in India. The company has been facing a full investigation in the country by the fair trade watchdog, the Competition Commission of India (CCI), for the last couple years. The American antitrust watchdog came to a conclusion that Google’s services were good for competition, but in the US multinational corporations can generally do what they like.
The antitrust case has been before the CCI as well for more than 2 years now and it relates to allegations that the search engine is abusing its dominant position in the online search engine space. According to Google spokesperson, the outfit was extending full co-operation to the CCI in their investigation.
It is known that the tech giant has settled antitrust cases in the United States and European Union, but unfortunately the Indian competition regime doesn’t have provisions for settlement processes. In addition, a complaint filed with CCI can’t be withdrawn. Finding prima facie evidence of violations, the commission had referred the matter to its investigation arm for a detailed probe.
Local media also revealed that the DG has also collected comments from 3rd parties with regard to this antitrust case and is likely to submit its report to the commission in the nearest future. Aside from penalty, the authority also have right to pass orders to correct a company's conduct in the market place. The CCI can go for structural remedies which could see breaking up of dominant enterprises into separate businesses.
First Google complaint was filed by advocacy group CUTS International two years ago. Then, matrimonial website matrimony.com filed another complaint.

|PM sent to Oziman to remove the pic of Hindu God from the thread.|
Let me tell you the real story. Why is Google facing problems is because well just Google "The most corrupt party in the world". The top searched party is ruling and looting India from the past many years and since elections are like a month away, so this corrupted party will do anything to show them clean as a slate. Hope you guys get my point.

|Rock ay least we all now know where "Bill" lives - whining to remove the pic? That is like me crying to get the picture of God removed... The thing is it is corruption and nothing more; even in India - rupee this and rupee that ALL THE FRAKING TIME..|
The thing is everyone is blaming these companies and THAT is exactly what the corrupt politicians want everyone to do. You want changes? Then vote them out.
I sure as heck didn't vote for "Barry". Yep all the ones who voted for him AGAIN got change; just the change they didn't expect.
As for "Bill" put down the incense Herb and step away from it. When you your head clears and are not seeing visions of Shiba; re write your post so we get your "point"..
What I meant was that the elections are gonna be held here next month. Google in its search results is showing the true face of the government. Now the government of our country asked Google to remove its party name from the list of the most corrupted parties, they didn't comply and now this antitrust case. Hope you get my point.
Man you are a fcuking idiot. My only point was that posting the picture of any God here is irrelevant. Did I blame any company or Google? No. Yea I want a change I want a dork like you to STFU when you don't know what you are barking about.
